    Long distance vs short distance services and boarding

    Following on from this thread, maybe I'm odd but I do different things depending on what TOC I use. For example, on Southern services even though London Victoria to Brighton might be considered "long distance", I just board only a few minutes before departure. Elsewhere, on GWR services from...

    Are people more reluctant to take a free seat due to Covid?

    Since the start of summer I've had people sit next to me on Southern's services during rush hour to Victoria. Had no complaints apart from one lady who would only sit next to me if I put on a mask. I declined so she walked off. I've also been on very busy trains from Lewes to Newhaven on those...

    With a service that disrupted and a train that full, reservations are usually a free for all anyway!

    Passenger "Mutiny" Due To Missed Stop At Swindon

    I don't know how people can stand up for over an hour and a half. I've purposely not got on long distance trains that have been like that. I'd rather wait with a seat at the station then stand.

    Do you stand up more to people who are sexist and misogynistic on public transport in the wake of Sarah Everard's murder?

    After 2 years of no football fans, I was on a train full of them. A small group where chanting "Wayne Couzens did nothing wrong". No-one told them it wasn't OK to say that and I was too scared. Would you stand up more to people who are sexist and misogynistic on public transport in the wake of...

    Northern Line Battersea Extension - Opened September 20 2021

    I agree with Geoff, the line shouldn't be extended to Clapham because it would flood the trains with people at the start

    19th July Lockdown Easing - Observations and Compliance

    I was on a Southern 3 car service from Lewes to Southease on the weekend. It was very busy (full and standing) with hikers and families. I was the only one in the carriage without a mask and people where reluctant to sit next to me even voicing their displeasure.

    Northern Line Battersea Extension - Opened September 20 2021

    Stupid question, but why didn't they bother putting in platform doors in a new station, seems a missed opportunity?
